Two of Johnny Alpha's closest Strontium Dog allies are Durham Red and Middenface McNulty and I'm showcasing both in this post. Durham Red is a mutant with a vampiric appearance who has collected many bounties, occasionally teaming up with Johnny Alpha or other Search/Destroy agents to complete a mission. She has spent time as partner to Frinton Fuzz and has seen action alongside Middenface McNulty and others. Her mutation is purely cosmetic, she possesses none of the mythical powers of the vampire or their disadvantages (an aversion to garlic, holy symbols or sunlight). Even so, she is still drawn to blood, though whether this is a physiological or psychological predilection is unknown. Her mutant powers include bloodlust, long lifespan, regenerative powers, super agility, super strength and superhuman senses.
Moving on, Archibald "Middenface" McNulty came to prominence as leader of the Tartan Terrors during the Mutie Uprising during the Second Mutant War in New Britain. He became a staunch ally of Johnny Alpha during that time and took part in some of the most important battles of the war, rising to the position of general. He is fiercely loyal to Johnny Alpha, and on finding out that Johnny was being kept trapped in a death-like coma by the alien Stone Wizards, McNulty offered up his own life to save his friend, though the sacrifice proved unnecessary when the Stone Wizards freed Johnny and let Middenface go.
Once again, I have two versions of Middenface by Warlord Games and Wargames Foundry. The smaller version, second from the right is the brand new Warlord Games version and yet again, I prefer it to the Wargames Foundry figure. The Foundry version is much taller but is more statically posed. There is nothing wrong with the sculpting of the figure, I just happen to prefer the smaller, more dynamically posed version.
The new Warlord Games versions of Durham Red and Middenface McNulty are available as part of a boxed set of five SD Agents priced at £20.00. The other figures in the box are Blubberlips, Kid Knee and Maeve the Many-Armed, who I'll be reviewing very soon.
